Overseas players looking forward to the upcoming Pakistan Super League
Cricket fans are anticipating the start of the 7th edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), which will begin on January 27.

Foreign players competing in the tournament are "excited at the prospects," according to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

The league has proven itself as an important venue for international cricketers to ply their trade since its beginning in 2016, according to a statement released by the PCB.

Since the league's return to Pakistan in 2020, the foreign contingent of cricketers has talked openly of their enthusiasm for the country's young talent, and they have really embraced Pakistani culture.

The PCB also stated that the upcoming PSL 7 will kick off on Thursday at the National Stadium. The first 14 games will be taking place in Karachi and the final 19 in Lahore. They will provide all foreign cricketers with yet another chance to sample Pakistani cuisine, music, and other aspects of culture.

Take a peek at what some international players had to say about it:

Johnson Charles
Charles from the West Indies stated that he is very delighted to be travelling to Pakistan. He said that it will be my second visit to Pakistan, and I am excited to sample the cuisine and learn more about the culture. He is ecstatic to have been given another chance to represent Multan Sultans, and I'm looking forward to doing amazing things for his team.

Alex Hales
English cricketer Alex Hales described the PSL as a “really high-quality league”. He said that the standard of local players, especially bowlers, is exceptionally high, and it makes the tournament very challenging.
